10 crazy parenting products
Pee-pee teepee, placenta teddy and the baby toupee. Just say no.

1. Sonogram Cufflinks

Picture of the scan in your wallet? Adorable. Pictures of the scan on your cufflinks? Overkill.

2. Cry Detector

“When Your Baby Cries, Now You'll Know Why.” That’s nice. But can you make it stop?

3. The Ritmo™ Advanced Sound System

Because playing a CD player next to your stomach is so last season.

4. Zaki Infant Pillow

Every mother’s dream: two extra hands. And one traumatised baby.

5. Fanny Pack Leash

They cut the umbilical cord for a reason. I’m just saying.

6. Baby Toupee

Because a baby without any hair is just embarrassing.

7. Pee Pee Teepee

Remind me what’s wrong with a strategically placed tissue?

8. Customizable cardboard cot

A cot that will be soggy after one wee.  For R2 000.

9. Time Out Pad

For parents who like to discipline with lights and music.

10. Placenta Teddy Bear

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. But I guess it beats eating it.
